Dr. DiTolla’s Clinical Tips – Z-PRIME™ Plus





Bisco Inc.
Schaumburg, Ill.

I receive lots of questions — via email, telephone and at lectures — about how to bond BruxZir® Solid Zirconia into place. Because zirconia is unaffected by sandblasting, hydrofluoric acid and typical ceramic silanes, you need to use a special silane.

I currently use Z-PRIME™ Plus, whether I am bonding a BruxZir crown with a resin cement (e.g., Multilink® Automix [Ivoclar Vivadent; Amherst, N.Y.]) or cementing one with a resin-reinforced glass ionomer (e.g., RelyX™ Luting Plus [3M™ ESPE™; St. Paul, Minn.]). Just apply one to two coats inside the BruxZir Solid Zirconia restoration, dry for three to five seconds with an air syringe, and you are ready to go!
